Ferrari photos from Serge Dermanian

These photos and anecdote from my friend Serge Dermanian arrived in response to my post "GTO photos from Chuck Queener". For many years, Serge looked after the cars in the Ralph Lauren collection including, of course, my old GTO. His job was to drive the cars in the collection as often as he liked and to keep them in proper working order. O lucky man!

"Hello Stephen,


I remember, how I meet Chuck Queener! In 1982, I had organized a Ferrari meet, at my Waltham, MA. High Performance Cars Alfa store. I had invited Peter Sachs, who came with a surprise "gift"! Chuck Queener in person, by the road from Connecticut, driving the fabulous, famous, 1956 Paris Show car, a white Superfast. I remember replacing the spark plugs as soon as they arrived.

Look at these 2 pictures! We had a great day that ended in a nearby restaurant & a slide show of ferraris I owned!


Souvenirs..souvenirs..



Regards
Serge Dermanian"

ah, 0483SA. I think Dick Merritt either owned it or brokered it very early. He calls it the "Jackie Cooper car" whenever I have heard him talk about it. Did you know the car back in its early CA days, Stephen? Also, I've been meaning to ask you, given your GTO ownership and the Ferrari crowd you were amongst in LA, did you ever hang w/ James Coburn and his Italian beauties?

Thanks for posting!

Sadly, James Coburn and I never crossed paths.

Stephen- I had an ashtray with that car on it from the 60s. Do not remember where I got it, but it was one of Gerald Rousch's favorite cars, so I gave it to him sometime in the late 70s. Beautiful car, thanks for the photographs.
